Five persons have been detained by the EFCC on suspicion of forging letterhead from the offices of the National Security Advisor, Attorney General of the Federation, and Minister of Justice in order to commit fraud.
The suspects were detained on August 24, according to a statement made by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) Spokesperson, Wilson Uwujaren, on Tuesday in Abuja.
Uwujaren said they reportedly utilised the documents to steal money from trusting members of the public.
His list of suspects includes Yakubu Hamza Mohammed, Bashir Ladan, Adamu Ibrahim, Steven Anom, and Mohammed Bello.
“They allegedly conspired and used the letterheads to produce fake employment and recommendation letters for a fee, to unsuspecting members of the public.
“The suspects will be charged to court as soon as the investigation is concluded,” he said.
